Smart’s New Year Top Tips…..

The team at Smart Computers Ltd would like to wish you all a glorious, rewarding and productive New Year.  We’ve pulled together our 5 top tech tips to get you started on the right foot…

1. Back up your data.

People don’t understand just how important this is to do! Backup is easy and quick – Back up simply involves copying files or databases so that they can be recovered in case of any accidents – You can never back up too much!

2. Don’t be click happy.

If your waiting for something to load on your PC, be patient and let it load properly – Patience.

3. Don’t be fooled.

No doubt you are always being told to secure your PC or laptop with good anti-virus software, but no offence intended, but you are the weakest component in your computers defences. Always keep changing your passwords regularly – Stop making them so easy to guess. Don’t just open any old link or attachments that you get sent in an email without checking yo see if they are legit. Think before you act!

4. Clean, clean, clean.

Over time your PC or laptop will get dusty and full of grime and yucky stuff which can lead to your machine to overheat and slow down performance, so it is really important to have a good clean of your machine regularly.

5. Upgrade to Windows 10

Out with the old and in with the new. Windows 10 is Microsoft’s flagship operating system, and you don’t need to buy a new PC or laptop to enjoy it! Need help to decide if you should upgrade or want to give it a try – We can help! 

Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to make things better for you!


Happy 2016 to you!
